How Long Do Air Conditioners Last in Florida?

The longevity of an air conditioner is a common concern for Floridians, as consistent use in a hot and humid climate can put a strain on the unit. So, how long do air conditioners last in Florida? On average, a well-maintained air conditioner can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years. However, factors such as the frequency of use, quality of installation, and level of maintenance can greatly impact the lifespan of the unit. It's important to keep an eye out for warning signs such as unusual noises or increased energy bills to determine when it may be time to replace your air conditioner.Outdoor Air Conditioning Unit

When Is it Time to Replace Your Air Conditioner?

If you don’t have proper training, it can be challenging to decipher whether or not you need to replace your AC, and replacing your system too early can be like leaving money on the table. Luckily, our experienced Sarasota air conditioning installation technicians will perform a detailed inspection of your system and walk you through your options—happily offering repairs if that is the best choice for your home or business.

Signs Your Air Conditioner Needs to Be Replaced:


  • Your home comfort is suffering: If your AC’s airflow is weak, or you are experiencing hot and cold spots in your Sarasota home, it is a clear sign that your system can’t keep up with demand.
  • Repairs are needed more and more frequently: While repairs here and there aren’t anything to worry about, if you are needing more than one a year, it’s time to call our HVAC team.
  • Your energy bills are climbing unexpectedly: Have you noticed that your cooling costs are rising without any change in your habits? This could indicate your system is overworking and there are products that might better suit your space.
  • Your system is short-cycling: If your AC unit is improperly sized for your space or has been improperly installed, it can break down faster, often leading to the system short-cycling.

How Much Does It Cost to Replace an AC Unit?

The exact cost to replace an air conditioner can vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of air conditioner being installed, the size of your home and the system, the removal of the old AC unit, as well as the complexity of the installation process. You’ll also need to factor in any additional add-ons, such as if your home’s ductwork or insulation needs to be modified, or if you plan on adding any HVAC zoning.  While purchasing a new air conditioner may seem like a significant investment, it’s a necessary expense to maintain the comfort of your home and it brings a host of benefits. 

Benefits of a New Air Conditioner:


  • Increased energy savings
  • Improved overall air quality within your home
  • Lowered utility bills
  • Quieter operation
  • Enhancing cooling capabilities 
  • Updated warranty options
  • More smart technology features are available

Consulting with our qualified Sarasota AC installation professionals can help you determine the best replacement option for your specific air conditioning needs and budget.

What to Look for When Buying a Central Air Conditioner?

When considering a new central air conditioner for your home, there are a few things to keep in mind. One of the most important considerations is what size system you’ll need. An undersized AC won't be able to keep up with demand causing more wear-and-tear on the unit, while an oversized air conditioner will cycle often which can lead to energy waste, higher bills, and a decreased system lifespan. To avoid these issues, it's best to consult with our Sarasota AC replacement experts who can help you identify what size air conditioning system you’ll need to adequately cool your space. Another factor to consider when selecting a new air conditioner is the level of energy efficiency you’d prefer. You can determine how efficient an air conditioning unit is by looking at its SEER Rating, also referred to as the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. Ultimately, the higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the unit is and the less energy it will consume. 

If you’re uncertain of which AC would be right for your home, feel free to contact our team today. We will help walk you through the process of selecting a new system, while handling the installation, so you can rest assured that your home will stay cool and comfortable.
